While all eyes were on Microsoft's E3 stage for its expected announcement of Gears of War 5, the publisher also introduced a pair of new games in the franchise: A Funko Pop-branded mobile title and a turn-based tactics game. Unfortunately, we don't know much about the aptly-titled Gears Tactics -- except that it will come exclusively to PC.

Here’s your first look at dystopian RPG ‘Cyperpunk 2077’

Finally, we have our first proper look at Cyberpunk 2077. We've known for some time that Witcher 3 developer CD Projekt Red is working on a new role-playing game set in a dystopian future. Beyond a brief teaser trailer, however, the studio has shown and said little about the title. That all changed today, however. A new trailer for Cyberpunk 2077 was shown at the end of Microsoft's E3 press conference, revealing a high-tech world full of flying cars, holographic advertising and robot wrestling. It was purely CG, however -- no gameplay or in-engine footage to be found (boo.)

The Naruto Shippuden, One Piece, Death Note and DragonBall universes collide in the best way possible in Bandai Namco's newest fighting game, "Jump Force". Details are still super sketchy based on what we just saw during the Xbox E3 2018 press conference but it would appear that players will be able to beat the snot out of a variety of marquee villains their respective manga series. The game is slated for release at some point in 2019.

In 'Dying Light 2,' your choices determine your path to survival

Among the truckload of world premieres at today's Xbox E3 event was the debut of Dying Light 2. The first-person apocalyptic survival sequel is equal parts parkour and zombies. This time, everything in the game changes based on your decisions, so you'll need to choose wisely while trying to stay alive. For example, you can choose to free up a water control point to help a nearby city or team up with people you meet rather than killing them. Depending on what you choose, what comes next in the game will be much different.

'Just Cause 4' parachutes in December 4th

Square Enix brought more than just Kingdom Hearts to Microsoft's pre-E3 2018 press conference -- there's also Just Cause 4. Rico is back, once again parachuting into some disastrous warzone with both guns and attitude in tow. The quick trailer showed off some new-gen powered gameplay with plenty of driving, shooting, explosions and impressive weather effects as our hero plunged directly into a tornado. The game is scheduled for release December 4th, so at least that's one title we won't be waiting until Q1 2019 for.

A new 'Battletoads' game is coming to Xbox One in 2019

It's been a few decades, but it's finally happening: a new Battletoads game is on the way. Microsoft and Rare have announced a new title (so far just called Battletoads) reaching the Xbox One in 2019. They didn't show any gameplay, but it'll include three-player "couch co-op" and will naturally take advantage of 4K on an Xbox One X. The teaser clip made a not-so-subtle nod to the original NES title's notoriously difficult vehicle segment, so don't be surprised if the new game provides a significant challenge.

Rhythm hit 'Beat Saber' is coming to PlayStation VR

Beat Saber has been one of the more attention-grabbing VR titles on PCs as of late, and it's not hard to see why: it amps up the familiar rhythm game formula with an immersive experience that turns every note into a dramatic sword swing. It makes sense, then, that the creators at Beat Games would want to expand their audience. They've announced that Beat Saber is coming to PlayStation VR at some point in the near future. There isn't even a hint of a release date, but knowing that it's on the roadmap might help if you were looking for reasons to justify a PSVR headset.

Xbox Game Pass 'Fast Start' is coming in the June update

During Microsoft's pre-E3 event, Xbox Game Pass exec Ashley Speicher hit the stage to announce several games newly available on the service today (Fallout 4, Elder Scrolls Online and The Division), plus a new feature. Called "Fast Start" it's designed to get subscribers playing their games even faster, by applying machine learning to download the necessary parts of a game first. Speicher said it would get games going twice as fast as before, and will launch in the June Xbox One update for application to "select" titles.
